This is a beautiful campground, not exactly the friendliest reception with Check-In. Our site was very nice but we immediately discovered that we had absolutely no internet connection and that the cable TV had only three oddball local channels. I called the office and they said that we had to be near the front office or near the General store to have Wi-Fi. As far as the cable TV reception was concerned, the park was in the process of going to a digital format and that our 2006 American Tradition would probably not have access to the digital channels because of the age of the TV’s. We left because we needed internet access because of our businesses. They never said anything about not having cable when we reserved our site. We discovered a "Hidden Gem" of a RV Resort across from Miramar Beach just five miles away. Be prepared … Getting to the beach is more than a chore even with bikes or waiting for the hourly Tram. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Our site was really nice. Wi-Fi is adequate but does not cover the entire park. When we hooked to the cable, we got plenty of channels but I never did figure out how to go directly from channel to channel just up or down. This state park is laid out beautifully. The bath houses differ because one was of the original campground and the other had been put in since being a state park. This a bike friendly park. With a paved trail to the ocean(tram hourly) it makes for easy access. Across from the park is a bike trail that runs along highway 30A for about 20 miles. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Great family friendly campground. Our site was large with plenty of foliage around for privacy. Beach is only 1/2mile away. Lots of bike and walk paths. Our site was level and cable tv was good. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second time to TopSail. After reading below comments, I was concerned that things have changed here. Well, they haven't - still a beautiful facility with a pool, shuffleboard, lots of open spaces. Our RV pad is fine, and I don't see a lot of them broken up. I guess that some of the previous reviews are put on in hopes people won't come here so it will open up sites for them. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

For the most expensive state park in the Florida state park system, they are really letting this place go downhill, as previous posters have stated. This was our third time here, and though we may still return due to the convenience of the location and the friends we meet each year, we will be thinking of alternatives if things don't change for the better. Unlike other state parks that have a listed time for bath house cleaning daily, this one does not. The reason? They are not cleaned daily, and when they do it is not an actual cleaning at all. They are really filthy. The maintenance in the park is bad also. Those up heaved concrete pads on some sites need replaced as they are dangerous and should closed off for use until they are. Drainage in the park is really bad too. It is really a shame this formerly beautiful park is being let go into ruin. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

We love Topsail and come here every May, but they need to start fixing the place or folks will start going elsewhere. Many of the concrete pads are cracked and heaved. Our road, Weeping Willow, was in horrible condition. Severe flooding earlier this year destroyed the asphalt and they just dumped gravel over the mess. We had a stream of water running down the street the first two days we were there. But if you're a senior like us, the rate is hard to match. The swimming pool is nice and the trams will take you and your stuff to the beach (which was also severely eroded because the lake was breached from the flooding). So come on, guys. Fix the problems. Give us back our Topsail. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

We have been going to Topsail two times a year for the past 4 years. We really enjoy Topsail and have met many friends there that go the same time each year. I will have to say that I am giving this visit less than an excellent rating. Over the four years we have continued to see the maintenance of this park go down. There are many concrete pads that are so broken up an uneven that they are close to being unusable. They seem to repair only one per year. Looks like it was site 152 that had been repaired since we were there in September. In our two week stay there was an electrical problem on six sites in the front section which they had to close down. After about a week they started to work on it. After almost 20 inches of rain the already broken up asphalt on Weeping Willow was almost destroyed. They put some gravel on it to keep the mud covered. Be careful riding your bike down it. It is sad that this being one of the #1 parks in Florida that should be paying for itself but it continues to lack the TLC that it deserves. We will come back again in the fall only if we can get a site that is usable. I never thought I would have to be this critical about Topsail but it is what it is. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an outstanding park in need of some TLC in a few areas. As the previous writer outlined, the restrooms / showers are a little rundown and need more attention. However, they are very clean until a few of the campers come in and make a big mess that they don't clean up. This may require the staff to make more routine visits / clean-up. You're not going to change the few campers who don't care what they leave behind. Another issue is the cement pads. While some are new others are broken up and in very bad condition. All in all this is one of the best State Parks we have ever visited. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We'll be back!! We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Very nice sites with lots of trees. However, the bathrooms and showers are in poor condition and very dirty. Showers have excessive mildew and soap scum 2 feet up the walls. No robe hooks or clean areas to place your shower items. Sinks had no hooks or shelving available. An otherwise nice park that could have been excellent. I have stayed at many Florida State Parks and the showers and bathrooms at Topsail are a disgrace. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Love love this campground! Just got back from our second stay. The park offers cable tv and wifi in the camp store and laundry house. Bring your bikes with you. They offer a team to the beach, as it's about a half mile walk. The campground offers a pool, which is clean and a nice break from the beach. Book early- sites go quick. Will stay here again next year. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Very pretty park with lots of shade areas but somewhat crowded - slots very close together. Well maintained grounds and special activities including a music night and an astronomer with telescope who was very helpful and informative. Could have done without the constant drone of weed-whackers "mowing" the grounds but we got used to it. Staff is friendly and helpful and working on upgrading some older sites that need repair. Would stay there again. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

Each site is concrete with a patio attached and surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, providing privacy and shade. We had full hookups. The park is pretty quiet. The laundry room near us was lovely, lots of washers and dryers with large tables in the center for folding clothes. You can bike to the beach as well as the bike trails that parallel 30-A. Shopping and restaurants are nearby. The internet is free and of decent signal which was very welcome. We camped here for eight days. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

This is the cleanest campground with wonderful service of access to the beach. Our backing-in difficulty is solved with the help of the Rangers. This campground is great for biking for adults or children with a lot of playground equipment and areas. We had family in four of the cabins which were excellent and spotlessly clean, also. We have been here several years, and I am beginning to see wear on the concrete sites and roads. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Like this campground a lot. Always stay here when in the area. Near shopping and beach. Arrived after hours. Nice large concrete full hookup including cable; pull-through site. Good for big rigs. Well maintained state park. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

This is the best, state park run RV campground, that we have stayed. It is located on a beautiful preserve, about a mile from the beach (with hourly shuttles), has a large play area, and a full laundry facilities. This RV park had water, sewer, and electric hookups. They also had cable hookups at the campsite! There was a small laundry room, which was clean. The spaces had lots of room in between which provided ample privacy. Would I recommend this park? Absolutely. Would we come back? Absolutely. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.
